The basis of an aquarium lighting
Aquarium, lighting is crucial for the success of aquatic life. Whether for fish, plants, or the aestheticism of the aquarium, tailored tubes will help you in the good performance of this form of relaxation.
If seek you to enlighten as it should your bin, you have foaming many sites and forums. It is not easy to find information about real for many situations.
Certainly, planting, tillage, fertilizer, nutrients, the types of fish and many other parameters may come into account, but try to standardize the lighting will help you. Even if problems continue or appear, you should know that when the light is steady and sufficient, the variation of other parameters is necessary to the functioning of the whole.
To start this topic, let’s talk about time. Not the weather of course (though the Sun can play on the illuminance) but rather the duration of lighting. A good day of full sunshine is considered to have a duration of 10 hours. It is advisable to have a timer in order to have a steady pace.
It is at this time that the Sun may come into play, because if the aquarium is exposed at a time of the day, in the direct light of the Sun, the accumulation of the tubes and the Sun would cause too strong light and promote the growth of algae. If you know the time, it is possible to pause in lighting (perfect mechanical programmer).
If you have an aquarium of sea water, the light must be more intense than for a freshwater aquarium.
What intensity of light for my aquarium?
The powers expressed in Watt tubes are a clue but don’t design alone, the adequacy or no light.
It is very important to watch the luminous flux in lumens as led bulbs. It is this information that allows to perform a very simple calculation, and so whether you are in the range of good lighting.
For a planted aquarium, it is recommended to have between 30 and 40 lumens per litre.
If this has aquarium plants asking lots of light to perform their photosynthesis provide 50 lumens per litre. Be careful though to be sure to have the utility and the aquarium is enough planted because algae will take precedence over the plants. A high brightness actually accelerates the photosynthesis of plants but also and especially of cyanobacteria for example.
Another indication, this time about the dimensions of the tray is to be taken into account. If the height is important, take a slightly higher power for not to penalise low-growing plants. The water slowing and dispersing the light radiation.
The color temperature does matter?
That’s right! And that’s why she should not be chosen at random.
We are here 3 distinctions: planted, planted and sea water.
* A not planted aquarium:
The color of light has no impact on the fish, except the color rendering. With an artificial setting, you have maybe privileged decoration with warm colors. Tropics led neon tubes, slightly yellow light, will accentuate these colors.
If you want a crystal clear water to effect, plan white led tubes (4500 ° K) neutral or cool white (6000 ° K). In addition, African cichlids, for example, will appreciate this light.
* A planted aquarium:
In the presence of living plants, adapt its light in function can promote their croissance.plantes d
A Green House plant grows best outdoors when it’s 20 degrees. And Yes, the spectrum of the Sun allows the plant to absorb these favorite light waves. Ditto for aquatic plants. Therefore, there is spectrum tubes full (scalar type and discus fish love this light).
These tubes with a lot of green gives an effect of sunlight filtered through the plant. To find out if all of the wavelengths are present, (IRC) colour rendering index specified you. A greater than 90 IRC is full spectrum or full spectrum lighting.
Using this type of neon makes the sharpest vision of the aquarium. The colors are also very well returned without distortion.
The presence of red or blue light increases the growth of the plants. A tube neon cold white LEDs (6000 ° K) can help the development of slow-growing plants because the intensity is high. Consider placing the tubes depending on the place of the different kinds of plants.
* A sea water aquarium:
Cool white is recommended in that sort of tray because corals use blue lights to grow. From elsewhere with this shade of white, the water looks crystal clear.
It is also possible to install a neon with only blue in association with a white neon.
The shades of blue magnify an aquarium. The appearance is similar to that of water illuminated by the moon. The corals grow their overnight, will be so help during the day. The whole looks Lunar.
The advantage of the led aquarium fish
Led tubes first of all have a great advantage. It does not heat. No risk of rise in temperature in a closed aquarium and no risk of Burns by feeding the fish or for cleaning.
Their light output is also effective during his lifetime (up to 50,000 hours for the stronger). You will have therefore no flicker. So, the change in tube is more to do every year.
With illumination around 10 hours, the use of led technology is a real asset for energy savings! Led chips need very little energy to work.
It is recommended for fragile biotopes, to space of a see two weeks change of tubes. Used to all the beings living in another light.
The watertight tubes can be placed on the surface of the water for a better propagation of light.
Very soon on our site, you will discover a range of led neon tubes that will grow over time and according to your needs. Do not hesitate to write to us to request led tubes corresponds to the dimensions of your aquarium. Customer service can be reached at this address: serviceclient (at) espaceampouleled.fr.
